I am interrupting The August Break to tell this quick story.
Jane has started to say two things a lot. One thing is, "I love you Mommy" (or Daddy). This is, obviously, awesome.
The other thing is, "Why?." Like, constantly, why, why, why, why, why. I have actually said, "Because I said so." (None of us are far from our mothers when it comes to this parenting thing.)
So, this is now a common exchange:
"I love you Mommy."
"I love you too, honey."
Girl, there aren't enough hours in the day to tell you why.
